Experienced speaker and workshop facilitator - tailored to suit YOUR veterinary organizations, clinics, and staff

Speaking

Let's face it - sometimes these topics can be SOOOO boring to learn about! That's why I strive to always incorporate an approach of "edutainment" - education along with entertainment - to my speaker sessions and workshops. Whether it's trivia style, punny jokes, or just being a plain ole' goofball, I am passionate about sharing this important information in a way that my attendees walk away from the sessions inspired to engage the knowledge learned into their own lifestyles!

Why should you care about your staff understanding how to adopt health promoting habits??

Through the creation of positive health habits using lifestyle medicine, veterinary professionals will feel empowered to transform their behaviors, engaged in making positive changes, and encouraged to prioritize their self-care.

With an understanding of how we tend to know what we should do to take care of ourselves, it can be a struggle to actually do those things! I could try to tell you what to do until I'm blue in the face - but I'm not here to be the "expert," I'm here to be your coach during my presentations. By taking the coach approach, I help veterinary professionals understand and accept their starting point, invite them to explore what is most meaningful in their lives, brainstorming various strategies and skills to support their well-being and begin designing their unique action plan for success!
